The UNSW Data Science Society (DataSoc) is a student society affiliated with the School of Mathematics and Statistics at UNSW. We are Australia’s FIRST Student Data Society!
DataSoc aims to provide Data Science students, and aspiring Data Scientists, an inspiring, cohesive and creative environment, where students can learn more about data science practices.
DataSoc was set up in early 2017, shortly after the introduction of the Bachelor of Data Science and Decisions at UNSW.
